WWE Raw July 18, 2011: Kofi Kingston Upsets Alberto Del Rio in Title Tournament
-Hollywood is apparently trying to destroy everything I loved about my childhood because there is now a Smurfs movie...just shoot me.
1st Round Tournament Match
Alberto Del Rio vs. Kofi Kingston
Everyone breathes a sigh of relief as Ricardo Rodriguez returns from injury and rightfully introduces Alberto to the world. Del Rio hits an early dropkick to the back of Kofi's head for two but Kingston comes back with one of his own for a near fall. Kofi shows off his leaping ability and hits an elbow for two while the announcers totally ignore the match and talk about John Cena's Twitter. People wonder why I miss Joey Styles?
Del Rio misses a charge against the ropes and hits the floor so Kofi follows with a dive through the ropes to wake up the crowd a little bit. Del Rio catches Kofi coming in with an enzuigiri for two and Alberto goes to work on the back of the head. We hit a chinlock until Kofi fights out and Del Rio misses a blind charge to the corner. Kofi, a house of fire in there, makes the comeback but Del Rio catches him with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker for two. Alberto looks to finish with the cross-armbreaker but Kofi surprises him with a quick rollup and gets the upset win.
Winner: Kofi Kingston
-See, now THAT'S an actual upset. It makes sense too because Del Rio already has the briefcase, so why not do a surprise finish? The match was the best one of the night so far **1/4.
